Full Service...I Think I Need an Oil Change

Ok, here's one of the greatest highlights of my life. TWENTY long years I waited for this moment! On Tuesday, my friend, Sue called to let me know the NKOTB was coming to town. That can't be real! I hadn't heard anything about such wonderful news! The phones started ringing and before we know it, six ladies were lined up for this night that will live in infamy.
To give you a little history, I was going to marry Jordan Knight and have fifteen kids - or something like that. Sue was going to marry his brother, Jon, and we were going to be best-friend-sisters-in-law. We had it all planned out...perfectly. The last time I saw them in concert was in 1989?? I even went to Vista Ridge Mall to meet his mother. I touched the hand that wiped the poo from my dreamboy's behind. Amazing!

Return to Friday, July 17th. Evie came over around 4:30 and we started getting all dressed up for the big night. She had bought all kinds of goodies because we were going to be the hottest looking 80's chicks there. As we put on our three shades of neon eyeshadow, Kathryn said, "Mommy, it looks like you have a rainbow on your eyes." Big belts, obnoxious colors, huge earrings, side pony tail...we had it all!

We got to the concert and low and behold, NO ONE else is dressed from the last century. We were total outcast. And to add to it, the concert was being broadcast live over iclips.net. NICE! It was okay. We had a fun time with it.

There were some extra seats available, so we moved from the lawn up quite aways closer to the stage. Then, the fun began. Twenty long years I have waited to see this face...

The concert was a blast! I haven't danced that much in years! And my how they have grown up...mercy! I'm still riding high from that night. AND, since I was able to download the whole concert, I'll be enjoying for a LONG time to come....until they come back for more!
